Winton Students Face Relocation

The students and staff at a Coeur d’Alene elementary school are in for one long field trip starting next fall. Winton Elementary School will pack up and move out for the 2014-2015 school year to allow workers to rebuild the 89-year-old school – the oldest in the Coeur d’Alene district. School officials announced Monday that the 320 students and 24 staff members will relocate five miles north to the Hayden Kinder Center, an all-kindergarten school that formerly was Hayden Lake Elementary School. That will require the district to move about 260 kindergarten students into Atlas, Ramsey and Skyway elementary schools for the year. Once the new Winton Elementary is open, the kindergarten students will reclaim the Kinder Center in Hayden. Winton, about four blocks south of Kootenai Health, will undergo a massive rebuild at an estimated cost of $5 million. The project will start next summer/Scott Maben, SR. More below.

More Info: Amanda Crowder showed up at Ramsey Elementary School on Wednesday night admittedly “a little freaked out.” Like the parents of about 300 incoming kindergarten students in the Coeur d’Alene School District, Crowder recently learned her son, Braeden, will attend a kindergarten center in the fall, instead of his neighborhood school.

Question: Do you support the concept of a Kindercenter at the old Hayden Elementary School for the Coeur d’Alene School District?
